In recent years it has become fashionable on the left to claim -- and this really is very amusing to anybody who has ever lived in, say, Chicago -- that only Republicans screw with election results. Apparently that is a myth:
Barack Obama's primary-night results were strikingly underrecorded in several districts around the city - in some cases leaving him with zero votes when, in fact, he had pulled in hundreds, the Board of Elections said yesterday.
Unofficial primary results gave Obama no votes in nearly 80 districts, including Harlem's 94th and other historically black areas - but many of those initial tallies proved to be wildly off the mark, the board said.
That would be the Democratic primary, in case you were not paying attention. No Republicans involved.
Internecine war is often the most violent.
A new trick for them. Usually they register the dead, bus in adult home residents or disqualify military absentee voters. This is the first time they actually just didn't count anybody!!
Well, they called it possible "human error".
Except that I don't think it was in error, I think it was most certainly on purpose.
Mrs. Clinton has not even begun to dig into her bag of dirty tricks.
But she will soon.
Reportedly, there were some Hillary undercounts as well and it's human error. Admittedly, these sorts of human errors do seem to occur more frequently in machine Democratic cities. I would put Philadelphia, the big Missouri metros, and New Orleans right up there.
What are the odds, eh?
